Hey sliders, climbers, lovers, and nature conscience peoples,

It has been a while since I have checked in from down south in Guatemala.  I now have nearly spent eight months in the country supported by the Peace Corps.  My activities here have been varied, sea turtle conservation, environmental education, lifeguard training and management, and most recently, beginning the process of building a school room out of trash.  Though these varied activities may put one to think how busy, active, progressive, and inspiring this experience is, the truth is, my original optimism has been gradually replaced with understanding and humility.  The most fundamental aspect in creating change is creating new patterns of thought, new ways of seeing the world, and reinforcing this consciousness.

Last March, I got a phone call from my mom informing me that my hometown had cancelled their recycling program.  For many of us, sorting our trash and putting them in the old blue bins with the curved arrows was second nature growing up.  Needless to say, I was more than displeased with this closed-door decision and wanted to fly home to figure out what happened.

The creation of ThinkGreenLiveClean.com can be traced back to a bumper sticker brainstorming session that took place in Australia in 2007 while studying abroad. What better way to promote the environmental awareness movement than with a catchy bumper sticker that will really make people think? Well, that idea lasted for about three months until I purchased the URL ThinkGreenLiveClean.com… Read more…


We all know about the many benefits of buying local. It is, after all, one of the hottest topics in the nation. We are told to support farmers markets when possible, ask for local at restaurants, and “eat with the seasons”. Yet, week after week we find our busy lives standing in the ways of Tuesday afternoon markets, local chefs unable to connect nearby farms, and eating with seasons impossibly hard when you don’t know what’s available. So what do we do now? Concerning local food, the answer is simply connecting the dots. Read more…

Wagwan everybody, it’s Austin checking in from Jamaica.  It’s been almost three months since I left home for Kingston, and my time here has been both incredible and difficult. So what I’m doing here in Jamaica, if you’re wondering, is the United States Peace Corps. So far the process has taken me from the struggles of being a trainee to being a full fledged volunteer in the southern Parish of Clarendon. I have been an official Peace Corps Volunteer for about a month now and I have been placed with an environmental NGO called the Caribbean Coastal Area Management Fund (CCAM). Read more…

I recently took a trip to Tennessee to be a part of a four-day music festival called Bonnaroo, along with 100,000 other people! This large crowd, combined with record breaking temperatures and unbearable humidity, meant thousands of plastic water bottles, cups, and other various trash items littered the grounds of the festival. However, thanks to the volunteers belonging to Clean Vibes, each morning the grounds looked like they hadn’t been touched by people, and by the end of the festival it was as if Bonnaroo never even happened.

Last Sunday I joined over 150,000 people on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, and to rally for Climate and Clean energy legislation in 2010. People from all walks of life were in attendance as The Roots, John Legend, Passion Pit, Bob Weir (of The Dead), Sting, and others rocked out to support the movement and pump up the crowd. Several keynote speakers were present at the rally as well, including James Cameron and the reverend Jesse Jackson. President Obama also made an on-screen appearance, as he addressed the audience and talked about the need to “heal the scars our parents and grandparents knew too well.” Read more…

After three months of intensive Spanish classes and technical training, I have finally settled down in the community I will be living for the next two years serving in Peace Corps.  When I originally came to Guatemala, I was informed that there were no sites on the coast. This at first was hard to swallow.  After spending four years in San Diego recreating in and studying the ocean, it took time to prepare myself for two years without salt in my veins. Read more…

Buenos dias a todos, Trent or Guayo (my nickname in Spanish) reporting here from Santa Catarina Barahona Guatemala.  The above photo is the view from my house.  It’s currently raining ash from the volcanic eruption this morning and the haze of debris is creating an eerie bluish hue in the sky.  It’s a beautiful sight, but it doesn´t compare to the reddish glow of last night´s lava display.  This is a daily occurrence here and no cause for alarm in the community.  As I write, men are carrying recently chopped firewood to their homes while the women carry maiz and vegetables from the farms surrounding this community.  Needless to say, this is an area where the relationship between nature and humanity is amplified.
